    Made of compressed card/paper, and marked with ECP so French (?) is it a grenade handle?

    Hello,
    Bump this thread.
    Looks like a "pétard", "artifice" or "signal" for explosion simulation or something similar. Typical shape (card-paper, black cover and white markings, safety fuse). Maybe 30's era.
    The narrowing (venturi role) at the base could also match with the stick (propellant) of signal ("fusée de signal") ; some kind of small paper rocket signal (in this case your device could be incomplete).
    Could you give dimensions (length and diameter) ?
    Can you see other markings after ECP (lot and date) ?
    Regards

    Herewith a example of "Fusée signal" (marking ECP and maybe 1921) - no details on this grenade (use - filling) :

    Cutaway of another one :

    I think the answer is in "Manuel des munitions" 1932, pp. 91-99 available on Gallica : https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bp...es%20munitions

    Cheers,

    S.

    Yes at the same time, I was looking in this book.
    Maybe 27mm signal (34mm seem to have no external venturi at the base)
